Last weeek I shared a post that was misascribed. It actually came from another source. It's a shame some people feel they need to lie in order to make a point. Here's the correction:

Thinking of upgrading to Windows 10?

Rene, my son-in-law writes:

Have you been getting notifications to upgrade your computer Windows 10? If you have not upgraded yet here are a few tips and options.

  • Backup before upgrading. Most Windows 10 upgrades are successful, but you don't want to risk not having a full recent backup of your data in case the unthinkable happens and you lose your pictures, documents, etc.
  • Windows 10 download is 3.5 gigabytes. If you don't have unlimited downloads on your internet plan then downloading Windows 10 might take you over the limit and slow your internet down or you may incur extra charges. Check your plan before you do the download.
  • Upgrade can take hours. While Microsoft says the upgrade can take from 20 minutes to 1 hour I have not seen this to be the case. Each computer is different and from experience some have taken hours. It's best to start the upgrade before bed or if you know you won't need the computer for a few hours.
  • Some software might not work properly. While many companies are releasing Windows 10 compatible drivers and software there are still some that are not ready. If you have software on your computer that is not common or you have an old computer or printer then verify that have compatible drivers and software available.
  • Consider a professional to help you. If you find the above too hard to do or just can't be bothered, but you want to upgrade to Windows 10, you can contact us to do the whole process for you. We'll pick up your computer, run a full backup prior to upgrade. Check to ensure your computer will work with Windows 10, then perform the upgrade and bring your computer back to you ready to use. Contact the office on 02 8188 9777 or mobile 0402 936 861. Arrange for an upgrade by Friday 27 November and receive a 10% discount.
And please forward this on to your friends and family you think might find this helpful.

Have a great day!

How to Tell the Sex of a Fly

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.

"What are you doing?" she asked.

"Hunting Flies." he responded.

"Oh. Killing any?" she asked.

"Yep, 3 males, 2 females." he replied.

Intrigued, she asked, "How can you tell them apart?"

He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

Love Someone As They Are


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
